There are a number of groups committed to helping Nonsuch Park, Nonsuch Mansion House, Cheam Park and Warren Farm looking even more beautiful and accessible.
The Friends of Nonsuch are committed to not only preserving Nonsuch Park’s history but also its physical features. They aim to open up the Nonsuch Mansion house and provide a history of the park to visitors.
How you can help
Every Thursday morning sees our intrepid band of workers arriving at the Service Wing armed with tool boxes, tool bags, power tools, etc. ready to start the never-ending task of maintaining the Service Wing, inside and out, its gardens and its shrubbery.
During the open season, in the summer months, a great deal of time is devoted to keeping the garden area looking smart but, with autumn changing to winter, much pruning and cutting back of trees and shrubs has taken place. Our responsibilities also include the rose arbour and its numerous memorial plaques.
You can join Friends of Nonsuch here. Membership starts at £6 per person.

The Voles are a small group of local volunteers, who meet on Thursday and Fridays to carry out practical woodland and gardening work.
They work closely with staff from Epsom & Ewell Borough Council who manage the day-to-day running of the Park.
The Meadow Project
This non-native weed out-competes the native species which birds and butterflies rely on for their breeding habitat. 95% of the UK’s lowland meadows have disappeared in the last few years and our aim is to save this local meadow.
Task days are planned all though the summer but turn up and help events happen EVERY Wed from 9.30 -11.30 starting 18th May.
